The Intent of our Science Curriculum
Our high-quality, knowledge based science education at St Francis Xavier aims to provide all learners with the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, physics and chemistry, as well as develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena within every pupil.
Our curriculum aims to give purposeful learning opportunities that build on children's prior learning. Children should be taught through enquiry based learning, where they are given time to investigate, prove and justify theories and reasons.
Science links in with other school intents; working independently and collaboratively and trying new experiences.
